Watch Portugal. The Man Perform "Feel It Still" With The PS22 Chorus June 23, 2017 11:34

Over the past few months, rock group Portugal. The Man has seen its latest single "Feel It Still" become the band's biggest hit to date. The super catchy dance tune has been already been covered by a wide variety of artists, including the Trey Anastasio Band. It only seems fitting that this eclectic group would ride this wave of momentum and collaborate with the PS22 chorus, a group of talented 5th graders from New York City’s Public School 22 in Graniteville, Staten Island. In recent years the chorus has performed with the likes of O.A.R., Stevie Nicks, Matisyahu and Michael Franti. See below to watch the recent performance of "Feel It Still."

In co-producer talent buyer, Michael Harrison Berg’s own words on Suwannee Hulaween’s fifth year, “Suwannee Hulaween, our flagship event, turns 5 years old this year and feels like it's finally flowered into a grown up. Between the ever evolving and diverse musical line up with a curated blend of Jam, Dance Music, Rock, and Hip Hop, along with with the experiential art experience of the Spirit Lake installation, back dropped by the natural beauty of the Spanish Moss laden oak tree forest at Spirit of the Suwannee, there is no better Halloween party in the world. Five years ago, we set out to take The String Cheese Incident's annual Halloween bash, and grow it into a full scale festival. Now, we have the honor of producing an event that we'd personally want to be at. We've watched the process come and go full circle as we've grown together with the most loyal and dedicated fanbase we've ever witnessed in our collective career. For our 5th anniversary in 2017, we plan to level up across the board.”
-

13 Years Ago: Phish Performs Atop The Ed Sullivan Theater Marquee June 21, 2017 14:53

Today we are looking back on one of the most unique performances we can recall, which was also 13 years ago to the day.  On June 21st (2004), Phish played on top of the Ed Sullivan Theater's second-floor marquee at West 53rd Street and Broadway. This performance came just four weeks after frontman Trey Anastasio had announced that the band would be breaking up permanently following the now infamous Coventry shows. The soundcheck earlier that day included an instrumental jam similar to "Quantegy." The first "Scents and Subtle Sounds" was taped for The Late Show with David Letterman and aired that night. Then Phish waited as Paul Shaffer and his band (from inside the theater) played an instrumental version of "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." The remainder of Phish's performance was for the benefit of a few hundred fans assembled on the sidewalk across the street. Neither version of "Scents" contained the intro. This version of 2001 contained only one “verse.”

Setlist: Scents and Subtle Sounds[1], Scents and Subtle Sounds[1], Also Sprach Zarathustra, Wilson > Chalk Dust Torture > Tweezer > Tweezer Reprise

Fall Equinox Festival Will Feature BBQ, Blues, Americana, & Much More June 21, 2017 08:14

-
-

The Druids Charity Club is pleased to announce their 1st annual Fall Equinox Festival, a charity event benefitting Hogs for the Cause and their quest to support families struggling with the effects of pediatric brain cancer.  The 2017 Fall Equinox Festival will be held in Montgomery’s Union Station Train Shed on Saturday, September 23rd, the day after the Autumnal Equinox. Noteworthy for being the time of year when the day and night are equal in length, this is a time for balance and reflection before the night slowly overtakes the day in the winter months. For ages, this has been a period of celebration of the harvest and giving thanks. To mark this special time, the Druids Charity Club BBQ team has joined forces with Moe’s Original BBQ to put on a festive experience in downtown Montgomery running from the early afternoon into the evening.

To honor the harvest, Druids and Moe’s will be smoking delicious BBQ for the event’s patrons, creating both Alabama and Central Texas BBQ styles. Additional local BBQ vendors will be added to the program shortly, please stay tuned for further announcements.

To punctuate the celebratory nature of the occasion, a music component consisting of three bands will be rocking the shed. This year will feature Blues & Americana style music. The headliner will be the nationally touring Band of Heathens, fresh off their 5th studio album, Duende. Big A & the Allstars out of Clarksdale, MS will provide a foot stomping set of electric blues; while the Montgomery rooted Family Reunion Trio will round out the bill. Please read below for band bio information.

Druids strives to create an atmosphere which is appealing to the entire family. As such, a Kids Zone will be provided in addition to a college football viewing station.

Hogs for the Cause

Hogs for the Cause (“Hogs”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on helping families which have been affected by pediatric brain cancer. Many families in this situation find themselves facing overwhelming costs associated with their child’s medical treatment. In order to offset these hardships, Hogs provides monetary grants to families in need. Hogs is committed to maximizing the impact of every dollar to support these families. Currently, Hogs has distributed over $1.8 million via grants to families in need as well as donations to other related charities. Additionally, Hogs has committed another $1.6M towards Children’s Hospital of New Orleans to construct an on-campus housing facility so that regional families can remain with their sick children in a comfortable environment. This facility should open later this year. The Hogs fundraising cycle is capped by their annual BBQ and music festival held every spring in New Orleans. The Druids Charity Club has enjoyed a robust partnership with Hogs over the last three years, and we ask that you join our efforts now to lessen the burden on these families.  While Hogs is based in New Orleans, every dollar raised at this event will benefit a local River Region family in need.

Collaboration in Service

Druids Charity Club is itself a 501(c)(3) (designation pending) non-profit organization consisting of a coalition of like-minded mid-30’s folks who were raised in Montgomery, along with their friends and loved ones. While a sense of duty regarding the need to better give back to the community we love had been simmering for some time, that sentiment was galvanized with a renewed sense of purpose when our good friend Wyatt Smith became sick with cancer. Wyatt isn’t with us in this world anymore, but his spirit lives on every time we enjoy some of the things that truly made him happiest: music, good eating, and doing right by others.

While we have had several private fundraising events in the past few years, we are especially excited to be putting on our first event in our hometown. It is with pleasure that we acknowledge the support we have received from Live and Listen in planning this event. We are equally excited over the upcoming collaboration between our BBQ team and the professionals at Moe’s Original BBQ, as well as the (pending) additional vendors. Can’t wait to see y’all in the shed!]

The Band of Heathens

-Headlining this one-day festival will be The Band of Heathens, whose five members operate around the evolving territory where blues, folk, country, and rock combine to create a distinct and soulful musical gumbo. The term “Americana” was practically invented to describe The Band of Heathens’ approach, which has mutated almost as much as the genre to which they’re identified. Duende, the title of The Band of Heathens’ fifth studio album (and eighth overall), marks their tenth anniversary as a group, and it certainly applies to its overall theme about the collective search for connection and communion in a technology-fueled world increasingly splintered, distracted and lonely. As band co-founder Ed Jurdi, who first learned of the term, explains, “It’s the essence of the artist,” or as partner Gordy Quist says, “It’s a word we don’t have an equivalent for in English, Artistically, that’s where we tried to set the bar, to do what this band does best.”

Big A & The Allstars

Hailing from the heart of the Mississippi Delta, many consider early 30-something Anthony “Big A” Sherrod to be the future of the “Clarksdale sound.” Big A picked up his first guitar at the age of 6 and hasn’t put it down since. Learning to play from local blues player, instructor, and mentor Johnnie Billington, Big A continues to act as an ambassador to the next generation of Delta blues musicians. Not unlike the confluence of the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers, his style incorporates many of the influences that collectively bubbled out of this great hotbed of American music. When Big A isn’t playing at the world renowned Red’s Lounge in Clarksdale, he can be found dazzling crowds at blues festivals throughout the country. Playing for you today as an electric blues trio, please welcome Big A & the Allstars.

Watch Big A performing at Briggs Farm in 2014 here:

Family Reunion Trio

Featuring William Barnes, Dave P. Moore, & John Mark Turner

Representing Montgomery’s own rich musical heritage we have William Barnes, Dave P. Moore, & John Mark Turner. These three have been family and colleagues since the early 90’s, but catching them all on the same stage at the same time is a rare and celebratory event these days. Barnes has been a staple on the southern music seen since 1992, leading his own groups like Far South Movement and collaborating with a diverse range of artists from Col Bruce Hampton to Snarky Puppy. Our audience will perhaps best know Moore and Turner from their collaborations together over the years within Blues Old Stand, a band which has achieved near mythical status dating back to its origins over 30 years ago. Together as a trio, these musicians will be serving up a set of gritty homestyle roots music spanning blues, country, Gospel, jazz and all points in between. If the sound of an honest tune being delivered by raw heartfelt vocals, crying guitars, and lonesome back-woods harmonica does it for ya, then you don’t want to miss this special hometown reunion show. These three “put it down where the goats can get it.”

Celebrating 48 Years Of The Grateful Dead's 'Aoxomoxoa' June 20, 2017 10:24

The Grateful Dead began their career as the Warlocks, a group formed in early 1965 from the remnants of a Palo Alto, California jug band called Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions. The band's first show was at Magoo's Pizza located at 639 Santa Cruz Avenue in suburban Menlo Park, California, on May 5, 1965.  Coincidentally, Velvet Underground was also performing under that name on the East Coast. After literally opening a dictionary and falling on 'Grateful Dead', the band would perform under its permanent name for the first time in San Jose, CA on December 4th, 1965 at one of Ken Kesey's 'Acid Tests'.

After signing with Warner Brothers Records, the band hit the studio hard over the next few years; releasing their debut self-titled album in 1967 and Anthem Of The in 1968. Just two months before the inaugural Woodstock in 1969, the Dead released its third studio album Aoxomoxoa. One of the first rock albums to be recorded using 16-track technology, fans and critics alike consider this era to be the band's experimental apex. This was the second studio album to feature second drummer Mickey Hart, who joined the band in 1967. The title is a meaningless palindrome created by cover artist Rick Griffin and lyricist Robert Hunter and is usually pronounced "ox-oh-mox-oh-ah."

When looking at Grateful Dead history, quite a few are connected with Aoxomoxoa. It is the first album the band recorded entirely in or near their original hometown of San Francisco.  It is the only studio release to include pianist Tom Constanten as an official member. It was also the first to have lyricist Robert Hunter as a full-time contributor to the band, which cemented the Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter songwriting partnership that endured for the rest of the band's existence. It was also the first time the band would emphasize acoustic songs (such as "Mountains of the Moon" and "Dupree's Diamond Blues"), which would become the focus of the next two studio albums.

Some of the songs on Aoxomoxoa were played live briefly and then dropped. Only "China Cat Sunflower" became a set staple through the band's career, though "St. Stephen" was played until 1971, revived in 1976 and 1977 and played a handful of times after that. Likewise, "Cosmic Charlie" was played a few times again in 1976.

Track Listing:

1. St Stephen

2. Dupree's Diamond Blues

3. Rosemary

4. Doin' That Rag

5. Mountains on the Moon

6. China Cat Sunflower

7. What's Become of the Baby

8. Cosmic Charlie

Hall & Oates Announce Tuscaloosa Show With St. Paul & The Broken Bones June 19, 2017 19:13

Legendary American duo Daryl Hall and John Oates, more commonly known as Hall and Oates, will return to the state of Alabama on Tuesday, September 26th. Earlier today, the duo announced a show at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater with special guests St. Paul & The Broken Bones.  Tickets go on sale at the Amp Box Office and online via Ticketmaster at 10am this Friday.

Hall and Oates have sold an estimated 40 million records throughout their career, making them the third best-selling music duo of all time.

St. Paul and The Broken Bones is a six-piece soul band based in Birmingham, Alabama, United States that formed in 2012. The band is composed of Paul Janeway (vocals), Browan Lollar (guitar), Jesse Phillips (bass), Andrew Lee (drums), Al Gamble (keys), and Allen Branstetter (trumpet).

Feel Good Fridays: Tank & The Bangas' Tiny Desk Concert June 16, 2017 11:46

It's been a hot minute since we've installed a new weekly feature, and what better time do so then Friday afternoon, when we're all inching towards the weekend. So without further ado, today we're introducing a concept simply known as "Feel Good Fridays," which will highlight a different band/artist each week whose music simply brightens your day.  We all have those go to tracks that are so good they make you laugh.  That's what we're going for. We want to share material from different genres that strikes that nostalgic chord and helps you kick off the weekend on the highest of notes.  And with that being said, let's talk about Tank & The Bangas from New Orleans, LA.

Back in late February, Tank & The Bangas won this year's NPR Tiny Desk Contest, one which received well over 6,000 submissions. The panel of 10 judges even included the likes of Trey Anastasio (Phish). In the third year of this contest, NPR received its most submissions this year, multiples from every state. As a result of the band's big win, they were brought into NPR Studios in Washington D.C. for a studio performance, as well as a national tour with Lagunitas Brewing Company. 

This New Orleans-based funk/soul group brings an element that we've never seen from any other band. Tarriona “Tank” Ball, who first gained attention as a slam poet, leads the group on some truly unique lead vocals, which vary from R&B, hip hop, and spoken word; all combined over a live band. At times, you'll feel like you might be watching a scene from a broadway musical, or at least we did. This group has continued to make big moves over the last four months, and we can't wait to see what the future holds. See below for Tank & The Bangas' NPR Tiny Desk performance, as well as their original audition video. Feel free to send future submissions for Feel Good Friday's by clicking here.

Relix Premiers SUSTO's New Music Video "Jah Werx" June 15, 2017 10:18

Click Here: Read Our Recent Interview With Susto's Justin Osborne

Charleston-based SUSTO (pronounced “soos-toh”) premieres the new video for their single “Jah Werx” via Relix Magazine. View the video HERE and share it HERE. Relix explains that “the band described the inspiration of the song, citing the great influence of Bob Marley. They particularly noted that ‘Jah’ is the Rasta word for God and ‘Jah Works’ is the Rasta term for ‘God is good’ or ‘God is working,’ which led to this song title. ‘For our song ‘Jah Werx,’ we took this phrase and reinterpreted it in terms of our own reality and understanding of the universe.’”
-
The band continues to crisscross North America, touring constantly in support of their new album & I’m Fine Today  (out now on Missing Piece/Caroline). Bandleader Justin Osborne sat down with Billboard in May to discuss their growing career HERE. See below for a complete tour itinerary.

The five-piece band has made a name for themselves in recent years playing high profile festivals including Hangout, Austin City Limits, Stagecoach and AmericanaFest along with upcoming dates at Pickathon and Hopscotch and opening slots with The Lumineers, Band of Horses and The Head and The Heart. Their first US headline tour took place in the winter/spring of 2017, with sold out shows in San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Washington, DC, Charleston, Savannah, Chapel Hill and Nashville.
-
Earlier this year, the band made their national television debut performance on “CBS This Morning: Saturday,” watch HERE. They also performed a Facebook live-streamed session for NPR Music’s Night Owl series HERE along with performances at Rolling Stone and Paste.
-
& I’m Fine Today was recorded at The Space in Charleston, SC. Of the record, founder and frontman Osborne says, “Something to take away from it is just understanding and appreciating when you’re not always fine. This album is about coming to terms with yourself and feeling okay with your place in the universe.”
-
SUSTO is comprised of Osborne (vocals, guitar), Dries Vandenberg (guitar), Marshall Hudson (drums), Jenna Desmond (bass) and Corey Campbell (guitar, keys). The band name derives from a medical syndrome specific to Latin American culture that roughly translates as “panic attack.”
-
The band released their self-titled debut in April 2014, which Charleston City Paperdescribes as “Southern Gothic country through and through.” The following year SUSTO recorded a live album featuring Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses and later went on to be the support act for Bridwell and Iron & Wine on their fall 2015 tour. Daytrotter, via Paste, described the live performance as “breathtaking."

Interstellar Boys Hit Birmingham's WorkPlay On July 29th June 06, 2017 13:33

COLLABORATION OF VETERAN MUSICIANS BRING DECADES OF EXPERIENCE TO NEW BAND HITTING THE ROAD IN SUMMER 2017

Featuring:

Todd Nance – Drums, Vocals              Sam Holt – Guitar, Vocals

Daniel Hutchens - Vocals, Guitar        John Neff – Pedal Steel

Jerry Joseph - Vocals, Guitar              Jon Mills - Bass

-
The Interstellar Boys are first and foremost borne from a collection of friendships. Musical friendships that date back as far as 30 years. Todd Nance, Daniel Hutchens, Jerry Joseph, Sam Holt, John Neff and Jon Mills have shared stages and songs over the years and now form a new band that draws on those decades of collaboration.  Todd Nance brings undeniable experience and depth to the band as a founding member/drummer/songwriter of Widespread Panic. Daniel Hutchens has been a driving force with the band Bloodkin for 29 years (and counting) and is widely recognized as one of the South’s great modern day songwriters.  Jerry Joseph and his various bands have been recording and touring on a national/international scale since the 80’s. Jerry’s expertise as a musician/songwriter is as unquestionable as his passion for sharing the power of music. He has recently toured and taught music in such far-flung places as Afghanistan, Ghana and is soon to perform in Iraq. Sam Holt brings a reverence and intensity to playing the guitar that energizes the faithful fans of this community in a way that is second to none. John Neff (formerly of Drive-By Truckers) is the secret weapon that adds depth and soul via the pedal steel.  And Mr. Jon Mills (professor emeritus of bass in the Athens, GA music scene) is the glue that keeps the whole thing tastefully held together.

Fans and industry veterans alike will find this band a compelling draw for its maiden voyage this summer season as evidenced by comments from Raleigh, NC based talent buyer Chris Malarkey (Lincoln Theatre): “When I was first approached about the possibility of bringing this lineup to town I thought ‘man, this is too good to be true’. The thought of some of the most talented musicians to ever to walk through the doors of my venues joining forces not just for a show, but for a new band, seemed farfetched at best.  But, somehow, someway the stars aligned, schedules were cleared and plans were made. The Interstellar Boys are real. What I can only describe as a dream band is booked.”

This accomplished group of musicians and songwriters look to explore new terrain touring together this summer….and have their eyes on the horizon to create new material, get into the studio and keep pushing boundaries as they have always done. Amongst the upcoming summer tour dates is a stop at Birmingham's WorkPlay on Saturday, July 29th.  The event is hosted by C4 Productions, and further information is linked below.

Roosevelt Collier Bio:
-
Soft-spoken by nature, south Florida-bred Roosevelt Collier does his hollering on the sacred steel guitar. Brought up in the tradition of the House of God Church, Roosevelt built his reputation alongside his uncles and cousins in The Lee Boys, known for their spirited, soul-shaking live performances. Seated front and center, "The Dr." leaves an indelible mark on listeners, flooring audiences with his lightning-fast slide work on the pedal steel. At festivals, he is a regular "Artist at Large," performing alongside many of music's most prestigious acts, from the Allman Brothers, to the Funky Meters, to Los Lobos to the Del McCoury Band. Whether on tour with the Lee Boys, bouncing from stage to stage at festivals, or hosting an allstar get down in Miami, when Roosevelt takes the stage, the ear-to-ear grins can’t help but be contagious.
